Shawn should know more about this test than me.
This test is inherently flaky because history lookups are async and we don't notify content about when they are updated.  We might be able to make it more deterministic by using mozAfterPaint though.
How about if we converted it to a chrome test?  Would we be able to get privileged notifications in that case?

We should be able to make it not poll at least then, yeah.
Mass marking whiteboard:[orange] bugs WFM (to clean up TBPL bug suggestions) that:
* Haven't changed in > 6months
* Whose whiteboard contains none of the strings: {disabled,marked,random,fuzzy,todo,fails,failing,annotated,leave open,time-bomb}
* Passed a (quick) manual inspection of bug summary/whiteboard to ensure they weren't a false positive.

I've also gone through and searched for cases where the whiteboard wasn't labelled correctly after test disabling, by using attachment description & basic comment searches. However if the test for which this bug was about has in fact been disabled/annotated/..., please accept my apologies & reopen/mark the whiteboard appropriately so this doesn't get re-closed in the future (and please ping me via IRC or email so I can try to tweak the saved searches to avoid more edge cases).
